Expansion ??
« on: January 28, 2021, 09:08:59 pm »

With a few fixture clashes this season it has become clear that the season is too short for the fixtures that are due to be played, mainly with the addition of WCT games. Even having games twice a week has meant a couple of teams playing two games on the same day.

We can extend the season by:

          1. Teams play each team twice home AND away meaning a 36 game season

          2. Change the league structure. 12 team divisions (5 divisions). 22 game season

          3. Reduce the number of teams. 4 divisions of 14 teams. 26 game season.

          4. Increase the number of teams. More teams in each division, keeping current structure.

          5. Increase the number of teams and have 4 divisons of 16 teams. 30 game season.

          6. Keep the game as it is and find a way to accomodate the fixtures

I don't really mind but guess we don't need more unmanaged teams so I wouldn't recommend increasing the number of teams. Could there be an option to reduce the number of cup games instead by merging league cup and league trophy. Would that help to keep the league the same length? Or somehow make the world club trophy groups of 3 teams or else you only play each other once to reduce fixtures. What about one leg cup games too?

Id agree about not putting more unmanaged teams into the league, and one legged cup ties would be good too. What about moving cup fixtures to the end of the season and playing league fixtures twice a week up front?

Considering there a lot of teams without a permanent manager, I would dat: option 3.

Hi

Personally dont see it as an issue - if a couple of teams have to occasionally play 2 on the night so be it ..

If thats the only issue I would suggest keep as is - and review in time for season 3 ...

Easy either way though ..

I like the idea of 4 divisions with 16 teams!

Yep I agree. Less games against unmanaged teams and easier workload for game runner. Option 3.

I'd be happy with the Status Quo or perhaps a few less teams with 4 divisions.

If the fixture list can be adjusted (remove 2 legged cup ties for example) then I'd go with what we have now.
